ChildcareCRM Boosts Conversion Rates with Parent-Scheduled Tours Feature
Here at ChildcareCRM, we spend a lot of time building our platform to accommodate the tour process and setting the childcare booking system to fit your company's best practices. One of the premier features of our platform is Parent-Scheduled Tours. This is a customizable landing page that ties into your CRM system to provide families an opportunity to book tours right from your website.
There are many benefits when using an online tour appointment scheduler. First, is the reduced staff time your team must devote to this often-tedious part of the enrollment process.
Another huge benefit for your business is an increased conversion rate. In our recent Building Blocks for Success report we found that our top performing centers (those with a conversion rate of 79% or more) had booked nearly 80% of their tours within 24 hours. By contrast, our lowest performing centers (those who registered or waitlisted 8% or less) booked 57% or less of their tours in the same period of time.
P.S. Parent-Scheduled Tours comes FREE with your ChildcareCRM account.
If you're already using our Parent-Scheduled Tour feature…great! Have you made sure to link your tour availability in your email and templates? This is one of the most impactful ways to curate a perfect experience for your prospective families.
How to Do This:
Step 1: First, make sure you are using our Parent-Scheduled Tours Form! If you have any questions about how to enable this, check out our article here.
Step 2: Once the form is enabled in your childcare booking system, you will see a new merge variable appear when building marketing templates in your CRM platform!
Step 3: Implement the "ParentScheduledTourLink" into your marketing templates. A great place to do this is in the first email response you send out to families who become New Leads. In your response email, you can thank them for their inquiry, provide key information about your center, and include the "ParentScheduledTourLink" so the family can see available tour times and submit a booking.
Note: This feature is extremely powerful and ties directly into your CRM platform! When using the Parent-Scheduled Tours merge variable, we will automatically detect which location the family is associated with in your CRM. So, when they click the link to view tour booking times, we will automatically redirect them to the available appointment times at only the center with which they have a previous relationship.
There are so many ways you can implement Parent-Scheduled Tours into your parent journey.
The first step is to make sure to take advantage of this feature! It's incredibly impactful on your enrollment conversion to provide families an option to book tours from the website. Once that's in place, remember that you can implement your tour booking platform directly into your email content.
